The week opens under a Virgo Moon, reminding you to watch your diet and get the work done instead of procrastinating.
Its a light week in the Astros with one planet changing course and a very beneficial and inspiring trine. Mercury turns back into direct motion on Sunday, August 19th paving the way to move forward with your projects and sign contracts.
Warrior Mars has been moving backwards since late June to help you review your goals and ambitions. It has been in idealistic Aquarius for two months now – instead of the normal six weeks, and will temporarily move backwards into Capricorn on the Sunday the 12th until September 10. That gives you the opportunity to get grounded as well as focused in terms of bringing your ideals onto the Earth plane. Get serious about the actions you are choosing to take and review them to be sure they are in your best interest.
Mars represents masculine ambitions, sexuality, and asserting your needs and desires in an aggressive way. He has had you reviewing your higher ideals and goals all summer while traveling in Aquarius, and now you need to look at which ideals can come down to earth for practical use in the months ahead. Create an action plan for the coming change of seasons.
Sunday, August 12 hosts yet another uplifting and positive aspects of the year, the second Jupiter-Neptune trine. At the first trine in May, Jupiter was retrograde, and this time its the opposite, with Neptune retrograde. Regardless, be sure to put this energy to practical use because it holds brilliant luck, abundance, generosity and compassion.
Jupiter trine Neptune is the big aspect of 2018. It is a harmonious and spiritual aspect for the collective that seeks meaning beyond the material. The Jupiter-Neptune aspect is linked to any experience that broadens our awareness, such as the pursuit of knowledge, higher education, and travel.
With this energy, your confidence level will be flying through the stars and any idea, no matter how fantastic, will be attainable. Go with the flow but please try to remember to keep your feet on the ground. Realize that its just your time!

The middle of the week is smooth under a social Libra moon. Thursday afternoon until early Saturday continues to be pleasant but at a more private level than mid-week.
Mercury is slowing down to end his retrograde cycle on Saturday evening Aug. 18th. Be sure to allow extra time on Saturday and be flexible to changes in schedule, and postpone important conversations and/or signing of contracts or important papers until next week.
